April 2004 Mopar of the Month
1963 Plymouth Belvedere Moparious MAXIMUS
|The Belvedere ran in the low 10s in 2003.
In 2004 with 900+ HP the high 8s are possible.
We worked very hard on weight reduction so
we are down to 2850 with driver.
The car comes out of the hole like it was shot out!
We now plan to run nostalgic races only, not bracket racing.
Later in 2004 we are building a 572 inch aluminum block, Hilborn (old style) injection and "alkyhaulass" for fuel -- but that's another story in the making.
After that, hummmm... we do have a 14-71 blower sitting around here somewhere. I wonder!
